A loan of $575 helped to buy four tires and have maintenance work carried out on his taxi.

Guillermo Alberto's story

Guillermo continues providing a taxi service in the capital city, Managua. His work is tiring but it has helped him to provide for his family and he earns good profits because he owns his own taxi. He has the financial support of his wife who has a small sales spot in a market where she sells handicrafts.

Guillermo has been paying for general maintenance work to be carried out on his vehicle through loans from Afodenic. In the past he used to have the work carried out in stages but now, with this opportunity, he is able to have everything done at once. This allows him to provide his customers with a good service and a safe journey. He will use this new loan to buy four tires, shock absorbers, bolts, a battery and a window motor. He will also pay labor costs.
